ST KILDA has handed Mason Wood an AFL lifeline, adding the former North Melbourne forward to their list via the Pre-Season Supplementary Selection Period.
The athletic goalkicker booted 76 goals in 65 games for the Kangaroos but made just eight appearances last season.

"Once the dust had settled post-draft, we identified that adding depth to our forward line was something that was probably the priority, if the right person was available," St Kilda list manager James Gallagher said.
"We invited Mason to training about three weeks ago, and in the short time he's been here, he's gelled really nicely with our group, impressed all with his attitude and performances at training, and he shows a real determination to have another crack at senior level.
"We're really happy to be able to offer him a position on our list."
Wood, 27, will wear the No.32 at St Kilda.
The Saints have two list spots remaining, which can be filled prior to round one, at the mid-season draft - or alternatively remain vacant for 2021
